Weather Architect is a powerful Custom Weather Generator and Weather Engine which allows you to create complete weather systems on a map with accuracy down to a single latitude and longitude. Weather Architect is a first-of-its-kind weather creation utility, and unlike other weather engines on the market, it allows you to visualize, create and become fully immersed in cutting-edge weather systems. Weather Architect gives complete control and creativity in developing detailed weather systems anywhere in the world, including over oceans where no weather stations exist within the simulator.
Within Weather Architect you can select various levels and types of precipitation. Each cell drawn or placed represents an individual weather cell within the simulator. All weather cells are fully customizable. Each cell can be modified by visibility, wind speed and direction, cloud turbulence, cloud shear, and cloud coverage. Weather Architect with its Intellectually Synced Texture Engine works hand-in-hand with REX 4 Texture Direct and REX Soft Clouds to give you the most realistic experience possible.
What makes Weather Architect special is that you are able to create multiple types of weather systems at various intensities WORLDWIDE. Upon finalization of your customized weather system and/or flight plan, you can either fly the weather scenario immediately or fly it at a later date. Each weather scenario you create is automatically saved for you, as well as the ability to remove them.
Apart from the obvious, Weather Architect is different than any other weather engine currently on the market. It only has to upload weather ONE TIME. This technique removes many of the common simulator-based weather issues of flashing, dramatic weather shifts, lagging frame rates, etc. No more repeated weather updates, no matter how large the weather system you create. This technique also allows you to visualize full-fledged weather systems in the distance!
Weather Architect is unique by design, requiring weather to be injected one time! Depart EDDF under foggy conditions, become immersed in a massive storm system in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, then arrive under clear conditions at KJFK, never once having to re-load or update the weather!
Radar: Dual-Mode Weather Radar
Weather Architect provides two ways to view the weather by providing a new dual-mode weather radar tool: DataLink and WX Radar. DataLink offers a weather view similar to most modern aircraft with uplink or satellite weather radar, as you can view weather surrounding the aircraft from all directions. WX Radar mode offers a view similar to those containing a sweeping beam, as the view of the weather is limited to what is in front of the aircraft.
View and Create Weather Along a Flight Planned Route
Weather Architect accepts FSX, FSX:Steam, Prepar3D, and most 3rd-party flight plan files.
With Weather Architect, you are able to import Flight Simulator X, Prepar3D, and most 3rd-party flight plan files to view and create weather along a flight route. This is viewable within the included DataLink radar during your flight. Another key feature is the ability to create AND edit a flight plan with custom waypoints. Creating a flight plan will allow you the ability to navigate around severe storm systems. Using REX EDGE Technology, flight plans with included weather can be uploaded and shared with other Weather Architect users. You now have the power to create a hurricane in the middle of the ocean and create a flight plan to allow other users the ability to intercept the hurricane together. Once you are ready to fly your weather creation, Weather Architect will automatically load the flight plan into the aircraft!
Flight and Weather Briefing
In addition, Weather Architect includes a detailed FLIGHT and WEATHER BRIEFING page which allows the ability to view pre-flight information such as; departure, arrival, weather and alert information along the flight route. There is also an option to automatically listen to a detailed weather briefing audibly, similar to what is provided by real airport weather centers. Not only is your current weather scenario provided, but also airport alerts and current sigmets.
Integration: Intellectually-Synced Texture Engine
REX Weather Architect with its Intellectually Synced Texture Engine works hand-in-hand with REX 4 Texture Direct and Soft Clouds to give you the most realistic experience possible. Weather Architect is optimized to take advantage of the standards in texture rendering provided through REX 4 Texture Direct. The Weather Architect engine will analyze and select the textures that best represent the weather situation and instantly inject them into the simulator.
Sharing: Precise Multiplayer Weather Experience
Because Weather Architect utilizes the widely-used REX EDGE Technology, you can share your custom weather scenario and flight plan with other Weather Architect users from around the globe. This makes it easy for multiplayer users to precisely share the same experience together in-flight!
From your My Theme’s Window, you can easily SHARE your weather scenario with other Weather Architect users.
If you are looking for a new challenge, the REX EDGE Notification System will alert you each time a new weather scenario is uploaded into the community. This feature can be turned ON or OFF within the settings area.
With our REX EDGE feature, you are literally connected to the rest of the Weather Architect world instantly!
